Brotherhood of the Immaculate Conception and Brotherhood of Nazarenes of Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Holy Sepulchre and Our Lady of Grief in her Loneliness.
It rescues the old brotherhood of Inmaculada Concepción (Immaculate Conception) and that of Santo Sepulcro (Holy Sepulchre); the former, founded in the 15th century by the public scribes of the city, the latter, in the 16th century in the Convent of Carmen in Puerta Nueva. They were transfered to the Church of Compañía in 1837, and it recovered some strength in the 1930s, but it was dissolved in 1973. A year later it was founded by a group of young people who gave it its current appearance. It has been holding its station of penance inside the Holy Cathedral Church since 1986, and Virgen del Desconsuelo (Virgin of Grief) was included in the procession in 1995.
Parish of Salvador y Santo Domingo de Silos (Compañía).It belongs to a previous foundation, but nowadays it is considered a typical example of the Baroque period, according to the Council of Trent. It is a Jesuit temple, and we could be astonished by its large but elegant size. We can highlight the impressive altarpiece on the main altar, carved by Teodosio Sánchez de Rueda in 1721, a treasure of the Baroque in Córdoba, in spite of having been altered several times due to restorations.
Nuestro Señor Jesucristo del Santo Sepulcro (Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Holy Sepulchre) – [PHOTO #1; #2]
The image of Nuestro Señor Jesucristo del Santo Sepulcro (Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Holy Sepulchre) is an anonymous work from the 17th century. The intention of the brotherhood was originally to commission sculptor from Seville Ortega Bru the carving of the image, although they finally decided to take the image of the old Christ that was worshipped in the Church of El Salvador.
It is a deceased crucified, with articulated arms which, for unknown reasons, were fixed. Due to its characteristics, it is thought to have been made by a local artist with broad knowledge about the school from Seville.
His face, without the crown of thorns or flames on his head, is slightly turned right, with his eyes closed, calm, lifeless. Blood falls in his eyes, as if his body was vertical, which clearly suggests that it is a crucified adapted to a reclining sculpture. His cheeks are very marked, as well as his eyebrows, which are slightly bowed. His wavy beard is arranged in locks and it shows a great symmetry.
Nowadays, the Lord is taken on procession inside a palosanto wooden urn, with mahogany polychromy. It was made by Rafael Juliá Villaplana and it was donated by the City Council at the end of the 19th century. The urn, arranged over four brackets, has four glass sides; the pyramidal and glass lid is finished by a silver Cross with the coiled snake.
Nuestra Señora del Desconsuelo en su Soledad (Our Lady of Grief in her Loneliness) – [PHOTO #1; #2]
The image of Nuestra Señora del Desconsuelo en su Soledad (Our Lady of Grief in her Loneliness) was made by sculptor from Seville Luis Álvarez Duarte around 1977.
It is an image to be dressed, and only her hands and face are carved. Her look is low and lost in thought, and her face shows seriousness. From her eyes, reddened by her cry and contained pain, several tears fall and go down her beautiful face.
Next to her, there are two more images, Saint John Evangelist and Saint Mary Magdalene. They were both originally commissioned to Álvarez Duarte himself, but, due to the delay, it was Miguel Ángel González Jurado who made them in 1995. They are both images to be dressed.
